Congrats - take it from me, you're gonna love the 328i with the sport 8AT. I liked it so much I bought one myself
To be fair I think I have read and watched every scrap of review material out there and they are all amazingly consistent on the car and especially on the engine- slightly concerned I should have gone for the 19" ers and HK audio
Seeing some if the photos on here makes me think the 18's don't really fill the arches, I have 19's on my current Audi and they do look good just cost a fortune to replace. Given the car appears to be a hoot to drive I'm thinking I may be replacing them more regularly!
Well see - haven't really thought about winter tyres my rose tinted glasses seems to have over looked how poor my other BMW's have been in the snow- definitely an option
